This allows you to set your air conditioner on a warmer setting without affecting your comfort. Cool Weather (Reverse) An UPWARD airflow moves warmer air off the ceiling area as shown in Figure 22. This allows you to set your heating unit on a cooler setting without affecting your comfort. WINTER OPERATION SUMMER OPERATION Fig 21 Fig 22 12 CARE OF YOUR FAN Here are some suggestions to help maintain your fan. 1. Because of the fan's natural movement some connections may become loose. Check the support connections, brackets and blade attachments twice a year. Make sure they are secure. (It is not necessary to remove fan from the ceiling). 2. Clean your fan periodically to help maintain its new appearance over the years. Use only a soft brush or lint free cloth to avoid scratching the finish. Plated finishes are sealed with lacquer to minimize discoloration or tarnishing. Do not use water when cleaning, this could damage the motor, wood blades or possibly cause an electrical shock. 3. Use a lint free lightly damp cloth or duster to remove dust from the blades. 4. There is no need to oil your fan. The motor has permanently lubricated bearings. 5. If your fan is provided with glass shades, clean with lukewarm soapy water and a soft cloth or sponge. DO NOT IMMERSE GLASS SHADES IN HOT WATER. DO NOT PUT GLASS SHADES INTO AN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER. WARNING! MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF AT THE ELECTRICAL PANEL BOX BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT ANY REPAIRS. REFER TO THE SECTION, "ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS". TROUBLESHOOTING SYMPTOM Fan will not start SYMPTOM Fan Sounds Noisy SOLUTION Check to make sure the wall switch is turned on. SOLUTION Allow a 24-hour "break in" period. Most noises associated with a new fan will go away during this time. Check circuit fuses or breakers. Caution! Make sure the power is turned off before performing the following steps. Make sure the screws that attach the fan blade holder to the motor hub is tight. Remove canopy and check wire connections. Make sure outlet box is secured to building structure, if necessary use the wood screws provided to further secure outlet box to joist. Check wall control transmitter connections (if applicable). Make sure hanger bracket is secure to the outlet box, screws are tight. Note: Fan must be installed at a maximum distance of 40 feet from the transmitting unit for proper signal transmission between the transmitting unit and the fan's receiving unit. 13 SYMPTOM Fan Wobble SOLUTION NOTE: All blade sets are grouped by weight. Because wood and plastic blades vary in density, the fan may wobble even though blades are matched. Make sure outlet box is secured to building structure, if necessary use the wood screws provided to further secure outlet box to joist. Make sure hanger bracket is secure to the outlet box, screws are tight. Use the balancing kit provided if the wobble is excessive (follow instructions included with balancing kit) SYMPTOM Lights shut off and will not come back on. SOLUTION This unit is equipped with a wattage limiting device. Lamping in excess of 190 watts will disable your ceiling fan’s light kit. To reset your light kit you must turn the power off and re lamp, keeping the wattage under 190 watts. Restore power to your ceiling fan and continue normal operation. SYMPTOM Fans/Light Turn On and Off Unexpectedly SOLUTION This is caused by interference, Please see "Frequency interference" for steps to change the frequency. SYMPTOM Frequency Interference SOLUTION 1. Turn the power off to your ceiling fan. 2. Please use a small size tool to change the frequency settings on the control system. 3. Return power to the unit. Note: After the AC power is on, do not press any other button on the transmitter before pressing the "Stop" button, doing so will cause the procedure to fail. 4. Within 60 seconds of turning the Fan's AC power ON. Press the transmitter's "Stop" button and hold the "Stop¡" button for 10 seconds. 5. Once the receiver has detected the set frequency, the down light of your fan if applicable will blink twice. (there is no indication if your fan is not equipped with a light). 6. The receiver has now learn the frequency which has been selected on the transmitter. After completing the steps above, you should be able to operate the ceiling fan and light. If the fan is not responding to the transmitter, please turn the power off to the receiver, and repeat the process. 14 SPECIFICATIONS These are typical readings. Your actual fan may vary.
